Calvert Hall's Adrian Amos still on the market

Now with Signing Day just about two weeks away, the Calvert Hall safety is taking steps toward making a final college decision.

“He is going to take his West Virginia visit, probably this weekend,” Cardinals coach Donald Davis said. “And then we’ve got to decide whether he’s going to Vanderbilt, possibly that next weekend.”

West Virginia was the runner-up in Amos’ recruitment when he committed to the Huskies in late August. Vanderbilt got involved after former Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin was named the Commodores’ new coach. There’s also a chance Amos ends up at UConn after all, although it's unlikely he'd visit Storrs again.

“He’s really seen everything he needs to see as far as the school,” Davis said. “What has to happen now is he and his family has to meet with [UConn coach Paul] Pasqualoni and get a feel for him. At this stage, visiting UConn for Adrian isn’t really going to do anything for him. He’s seen UConn, knows what UConn has to offer. What he has to see is what’s up with the new staff, and what the coaches envision for him. Has anything changed from what Coach Edsall envisioned for him as a student, as an athlete, and so forth? That’s really what’s weighing on him right now. He could very well still go to UConn. That’s not at all ruled out.”

Davis said Maryland – under both the previous and current coaching regimes – has not offered Amos a scholarship.

Amos, 6-1, 200 pounds, finished his senior season with 78 tackles, four interceptions and three forced fumbles. A first-team Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection, Amos helped the Cardinals claim the MIAA A Conference championship.
